Our daughter Liz came home from college for the weekend, and she redid my blog for me! Thank you so much Lizzy! You know I couldn't do it without you!
Well it's that sad time of the year, where there are either a couple of garage sales, or none at all. Pickings were very slim, and all I got was the old tray, above.
And I got this old needle book. One more, and it will officially be a collection! Another collection. Yay!
I got this fan a couple of weeks ago at a garage sale, for $2. Here's where the "redon't" comes in.
I've seen these old fans on Ebay, and on blogs too, with the blue base. So I decided that I would just spraypaint the base blue. Now I've seen one with the blades blue too. So now I think I want to try somehow to paint the blades blue too. At the same time, I wish I had just left it the way it was. Do you ever do that? Jump into a project and then regret it?
Do you remember Fifi, my little cement poodle statue that I found at the curb, minus it's little tail?
I decided to give her a coat of white paint, and a red collar with pearls, along with a dog tag. Doesn't she look so much cuter, so French poodle-ish? It was one of those projects where you know you should be doing something more important, like doing the laundry, or giving the cat a bath, but it was so nice out, and Fifi was crying out for a more flattering look!
I bought this yarn a few weeks ago at Michaels. I fell in love with the colors. This one is called Harvest. Well, a few hours later.....
I had a nice scarf to go along with this quilted jacket that I thrifted for $1......
and these slippers too. I "retaught" myself to knit last fall on YouTube. You sure can learn alot on YouTube! I used the simplest slipper pattern that I could find, just to get myself back into knitting. Now I'd like to try something a little more complicated, like a sweater. I love every single color of the Homespun brand, and I see Michaels has it 2/$7 this week. Hmmmmm. Well, that's what I've been up to. How about you?!
